Blink-182 man released from hospital following plane crash
Blink-182's Travis Barker has been released from the Los Angeles area hospital where he was being treated for burns following a September 19 plane crash.

The 32-year-old drummer was released from Sherman Oaks' Grossman Burn Center, and is now recovering at home. Barker has requested privacy while he continues to recover, reports E! Online.

Barker, who often blogged about his hospital experiences, sustained second- and third-degree burns in the plane crash that killed four people.

Barker was one of two survivors of the Learjet crash in South Carolina, along with DJ AM (Adam Goldstein). Goldstein gave his first performance since the crash alongside Jay-Z in LA last week, as previously reported.

Barker and Goldstein are both expected to make a complete recovery. An investigation into the cause of the crash is still ongoing.
